Talking About Color

(p.241) Conclusion
The Republic of Color

Michael Rossi

University of Chicago Press

This concluding chapter covers the institutions, ideologies, techniques, and technologies that emerged during the early twentieth century from previous decades of color research. While some – such as Ladd-Franklin’s “development” theory – were abandoned; and others – such as Peirce’s Pragmatism and semiotic – flourished, all found their ways into new medical, governmental, commercial, and popular modes of understanding and working with color, and with perceiving human beings.
